For any of you lovelies with plans to visit The Metropolitan Museum of Art in the future, be advised that yesterday there was an increase in the recommended price of admission to $25 for adults, $17 for seniors, and $12 for students. It had been $20, $15, and $10, respectively. It is the first price increase in 5 years. Children under 12 are admitted for free and there are never additional fees to see any of the special exhibitions the Met is showing, such as Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty.
